Romney's path of destruction

William A. Jacobson writes at Legal Insurrection: Romney starts war in Republican Balkans.

Jacobson is among a growing number of  people growing uneasy with the course Mitt Romney's campaign has taken. Instead of a war in the Balkans, I compare Romney's Florida onslaught to General Sherman's slash and burn march through Georgia.

More than a presidential nomination is at stake.

Don't expect a bumper crop of GOP House or Senate wins this fall if a presidential candidate is allowed to scorch the party's fields and scatter its workers for the sake of destroying an opponent.

And don't expect a man who divides his party to be a man who can lead a nation.
